Continuum of Care Conference

Overview Ronesh Mistry

What Lies Ahead… CCR in 2019 and Beyond

It has been two years since the California’s Continuum of Care Reform became effective. Our 2019 conference will narrow in on the remaining unresolved challenges as well as highlight our many successes.  Not all group homes have converted to STRTPs, not all STRTPs have mental health contracts, most counties are still struggling to recruit sufficient resource parents, and there are changes to state law on the horizon pursuant to the Family First Prevention Services Act.  Nevertheless, probation departments are expanding youth and family engagement beyond anyone’s expectations, county departments and other child serving agencies are more engaged with one another than ever before, providers are working to expand their service delivery to meet the needs of youth referred to them, and new implementation strategies emerge daily.  Please join us in San Diego for what will be an informative two-day conference!
